Why is Marco Rubio stalling the confirmation of Judge William Thomas (with good reason)?

Senator Marco Rubio is a brilliant man who sees through facades.  One clear facade he's seeing through is that of Circuit Judge William Thomas.  Judge Thomas has carried on with his one sided vision since day one of his judgeship. 

WASHINGTON -- Members of the Congressional Black Caucus expressed outrage at Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) on Wednesday for stalling Senate approval of two black judicial nominees that he had previously endorsed.
Rubio and fellow Florida Sen. Bill Nelson (D) recommended Brian Davis and William Thomas last year to President Barack Obama to fill vacancies on two U.S. district courts in Florida. But the nominations have since stalled in the Senate because Rubio won't provide a "blue slip" to the Senate Judiciary Committee, a customary step that signals a senator's consent to proceed with nominees from his or her state. Without a blue slip, the committee chairman won't bring up a nominee.
Davis' nomination to the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida has now been pending for 505 days. Thomas' nomination to the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida has been pending for 236 days. Both vacancies come at a time when the federal district court system is backlogged, struggling with a 10 percent judicial vacancy rate.
Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-Fla.) said he has known Thomas since he was a child and can't figure out why Rubio isn't letting his nomination through. Both nominees have cleared Florida's Federal Judicial Nominating Commission, which vets nominees and makes recommendations to senators representing the state. Read our blog and Ana Maria Angel's blog ( and know why William Thomas should never practice law. 
"I know this much: William Thomas was here before Marco Rubio's family came here," Hastings fumed during a press conference with members of the Congressional Black Caucus, or CBC. "It would seem to me that Marco Rubio could pick up the telephone and call me and ask me a little bit more about William Thomas if he needs to know something more about him."
So we tell Hastings to read our blog and see the blog for Ana Maria Angel and tell us how much more we all need to know about William Thomas and his rulings?
Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) told The Huffington Post she's been trying to talk to Rubio directly, but can't get in touch with him.
"We're friends. We have been for a long time. I don't know what it is," Wilson said of Rubio. "So I say to you, Marco, 'We're depending on you. We're depending on you today. Why now? What is the holdup?'" Marco make the right decision - do not allow Judge Thomas to go to the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida. Listen to the citizens of Miami Dade!

It is the right of every United States citizen to have access to their land.  This is the case in almost every state and county in the United States with the exception of Miami Dade County.  Miami Dade has a liberal one-sided judge in their courts.  Judge Thomas has sided with Green East and Allen Greenwald to remove an easement that has been in existence since 1935, in essence land-locking the business.  Of course this affected the business greatly creating yet another business closure.   An easement is considered as a property right in itself at common law and is still treated as a type of property in most jurisdictions - with the exception of Miami Dade County and Judge Thomas.  

Since 1978, Ted Vernon Specialty Autos was a thriving business located on  471 NE 79th St, Miami, Florida.  The easement that was provided on the deed of the land purchased by Ted Vernon was on the left side of the property. It was an appropriate easement to conduct business for over 30 years.  Ted Vernon Specialty Autos provided jobs to quite a few of Miami Dade's citizens in that area.  Because Judge Thomas decided to rule in favor of Green East without a valid reason superseding an existing ruling that took place in 1935, the business lost profits, people lost their jobs and the business had to undergo the costs of acquiring and moving to another location.  Doesn't that make us wonder how powerful Green East is and why on earth would Judge Thomas render a decision like that? That's because he sided with the largest contributor to the Democratic Party in South Florida. Stephen Bittel is one of the stockholders of the land owner (Green East) was the principal owner of Terranova Corporation, who also managed the property.

Steven Bittel,  owner of the Terranova Corporation (, contributed loads of money to the Democratic Party in Florida (  Judge William Thomas is a democratic judge (  Anyone see a connection here?

Does Miami Dade actually need to have fewer jobs available to our citizens because of Judge Thomas's wrong doing and illegal rulings? 

This issue affects every single citizen in the United States.  We have the right to enter our land and utilize it as necessary.  Why should another business close because of Miami Dade's corruption?  Judge Thomas gave the full right of easement to the development company.   

Circuit Judge William Thomas has shown on numerous occasions blatant disregard for the rights of Miami Dade citizens, as well as City of Miami citizens, business owners of Miami Dade County and landowners of Miami Dade County. Take the case of Ana Maria Angel, who was brutally raped and killed in South Beach. Her boyfriend was stabbed.  Judge Thomas threw out the case of the alleged triggermen, because he didn't feel the Miranda rights were read right ( 

If you have been wronged by Circuit Judge William Thomas we want to hear from you. We, the Citzens of Miami Dade County deserve justice and respect.
